Galatasaray defender Omar Elabdellaoui was rushed tohospital after sufferinginjuries to his hands and face when some fireworks he was holding exploded during New Year’s Eve celebrations.

“Our player Omar Elabdellaoui was taken to Liv Hospital tonight” read the statement. “Unfortunately, he was injured in an incident at home. In the hospital he received first aid.

"The damage in his eyes will only be clear after further examination. He is fully conscious now and there is no risk of death.

“We hope that our important player will return healthy and well as soon as possible.”

Galatasaray vice-president Adurrahim Albayrak, coach Fatih Terim and captain Arda Turan are believed to have visited Elabdellaoui in hospital.

Doctor Vedat Kaya, who has been treating the 29-year-old, said he was beginning to show signs of improvement.

"There are injuries in both eyes, more in one eye,” he said. “His current situation is better than yesterday. He has the ability to see, but how will his condition be in the future?It is difficult to say anything now.”

Galatasaray President Mustafa Cengiz also sought to reassure concerned supporters in a statement.

"Omar Elabdellaoui is in good health.” it read. “It is still early to talk about his long-term health, but he is getting better. The hope should never be lost. I think that we have to wait one or two weeks.”

Elabdellaoui has made seven appearances for Galatasaray since joining in August from Greek side Olympiakos, where he made more than 100 appearances over six years.

He began his senior career at Manchester City but failed to make a competitive appearance for the Premier League club, spending time out on loan at Stromsgodset, Feyenoord and Eintracht Braunschweig.

He eventually made a permanent move to Braunschweig in 2013, spending a season with the German side before moving to Olympiakos.
